    When you hear “Japanese Tea”, what comes to your mind? I think most people have green tea on their mind. It’s true that Japanese green tea is really popular all over the world because of its health benefits. However, there are many more kinds of teas in Japan, and those are really good for your health especially when on a diet. In this article, I’ll tell you about some Japanese teas.

    As you know, green tea is really good for your health and is has an amazing taste. Green tea is called Ryokucha in Japanese. Green tea is said to be really good for your digestive system, skin, inflammations and burning fat. You can get green tea almost everywhere such as in supermarkets, vending machines, and convenience stores. However, you most likely can find it in your country, too.

    Mugicha (Barley tea)

    Barley tea is a really popular kind of tea in Japan, just like green tea. As the name suggests, this tea is made from barley, and its color is brown. I think it tastes very similar to English tea, but it’s not sweet like English tea. Barely tea has positive effects on health such as cancer prevention, and blood cleansing. And also, barley tea doesn’t contain any caffeine, so young children and elder people can drink a lot of it safely.

    Oolong Tea

    Oolong tea is originally from China, but it’s really popular in Japan nowadays. Oolong tea is a little bit more bitter than the other teas, and looks similar to barley tea. Oolong tea is made from the same leaves as green tea, so it’s obvious that Oolong tea is good for your health. Oolong tea can absorb fat acid in your body, and helps to cleanse that fat substance out of your body. And also, Oolong tea is good for relaxation.

    So there you are, I introduced you the three most popular kinds of tea that the Japanese usually drink. Although, there are many kinds of teas these days that are really good for your health, I strongly recommend you to try these teas not just when you are in Japan, but also when you are in any other country. I believe these teas can make your life better and healthier!
